Throughout the 75-year iconic history of Porsche, some models just stand out a little more than the rest. Legendary vehicles that revolutionized the way we dream and how we moved forward. At the Icons Museum at Rennsport Reunion 7, you can get closer to these legends than ever before.
The museum itself is set on a pit lane. Each garage is dedicated to reflect a specific decade, featuring an iconic Porsche motorsport vehicle as well as a comparable road car. You’ll get to step into a world that blurs the lines between the past and present as you explore iconic Porsche vehicles from the 50s through today.
Every decade presents a world of Porsche heritage and history to explore. Like the ‘80s, when Porsche was dedicated to developing new technologies that would provide the best on-road and on-track experiences. These innovative technologies gave way to the 962. One of the most successful cars in racing history, it dominated the tracks from the US IMSA series to the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France.
The same spirit of innovation can also be found in the 959. Often regarded as the world’s first supercar, the 959 wasn’t initially street-legal in the USA until the Show or Display law in 1999 – due to its significant importance to car culture. The 959 was one of the first cars to be granted this designation and helped pave the way for future Porsche supercars.
Or you can stroll down the pit lane to the 2010s, where expanding innovation with a focus on electric technologies made its way to both the track and the road. The (997) 911 GT3 R Hybrid is a perfect example of these innovations in action. The first hybrid racing 911 produced by Porsche not only turned heads on the track, but reduced the numbers of pit stops, too.
The same decade saw the launch of the 918, the first hybrid supercar built by Porsche. With 887 horsepower, it was the highest horsepower road car that Porsche ever produced and the first street legal production car to break seven minutes at the Nürburgring.
